When Lydia was first born, google became my friend. I loved reading what products other moms used. So, now that we're 9 months in…..I'm paying it forward. We always keep a diaper bag packed and ready to go for last minute excursions plus we have a second diaper bag ready as a back up. Trust me, with different people taking her different places…..that back up bag has come in handy! So, here we are……..the contents of my diaper bag (diapers and recommendations included)!
Diaper Bag Necessities
Diapers: We have tried a million kinds of diapers. Seriously. And, lucky for us…..our favs are also some of the most affordable! Parent's Choice Diapers (available at Walmart) cost significantly less than the other brands we've used and are incredibly absorbent. In fact, compared to other brands…..by using Parent's Choice Diapers….we are saving about $240 a year. How awesome is THAT? Plus Parent's Choice has a increased absorbency, they're great for day and overnight! We keep a full day supply of diapers in the diaper bag at any time (6-8 diapers).
Wipes / Pouch: This wipe pouch is awesome! It keeps wipes moist, and zips open and shut for quick access. I pack about 50 wipes at a time. Yes, I may be over prepared….but I also use wipes to clean surfaces before changing Lydia on them.
Changing Pad: Necessary. Trust me, you don't want to set your baby on a public changing table. Germ city. I wash ours after trips out.
Toys: Trips usually mean baby will need entertainment. So, I bring a few of Lydia's favs. Along with a pacifier (if your baby uses one…..keep an extra in your diaper bag at all times).
Food: Is Lydia the only baby OBSESSED with puffs now that she can eat finger foods? Seriously. It's out of control. We keep puffs and a pouch of baby food along with a spoon in the bag at all times.
Additional items: change of clothes, hat, baby sunscreen, nursing cover, light blanket
